Prison School: A Fantasy or a Nightmare?

animeshiroe.wordpress.comHello everybody today I’ll be talking about Prison School. I meant to talk about this one a long time ago but never got around to it. This one was made by Akira Hiramoto which started out as a manga, but later became an anime show.

The story starts out with five teenage boys being admitted to Hachimitsu Academy, but what they didn’t know until they got to the school was that they were the only boys attending the school. Originally the academy was an all girls school until recently when the school decided to become coed and use a group of boys to test out how well that would work.

Kiyoshi and his friends go from shocked to ecstatic for realizing the situation that their in and couldn’t wait for the semester to begin. Boys being boys they end up doing something stupid which was trying to peep on the girls while their bathing and get caught and arrested. Not arrested by the actual police, but by the school police which is made up by the student council of three members.

www.zonanegativa.comWhat the guys didn’t know about the school was that it has very strict rules that are still enforced, even though, the school is trying to change its policy. So, because their so strict instead of getting a slap on the wrist and telling them not to do it again, they are given a choice. Either endure prison school for a month or be expelled.

They ended up choosing  prison because of obvious reasons. During their time there, they were basically tortured, humiliated and treated like slaves the whole time. Reiji who is the fat one of the group with a small face takes everything in stride. To him the punishment was heaven even though he was beaten and treated like crap everyday.  You can probably tell that he probably thought he was never going to get any action anytime soon so he thought this was probably the closest thing to it.

Poor guy. 

Kiyoshi on the other hand wanted to get out of there as soon as possible including the others (except Reiji) . For most of them they just wanted to be free and far away from there as much as possible, but Kiyoshi wanted to get out of there for a whole different reason. He wanted to go on a date that was promised to him by Chiyo who is also the student counsel’s sister.

In this anime, there are a lot of jail type situations like betrayal, love, jailbreaks, etc. It was really funny to watch the guys so everything in their power to get away from these girls. Sometimes, I would feel bad for them until they did something stupid and I would just laugh some more. For you guys out there, if you haven’t watched or read Prison School yet then I suggest you start. Even if you don’t get any enjoyment out of watching these guys squirm then watching a trio of hot girls go around beating them up and putting themselves in compromising positions surely will.

Love Stage

Source: myanimelist.net

The manga ‘ Love Stage’ was recently turned into an actual anime show which I enjoyed very much. The manga was written by Eiki Eiki and was illustrated by Taishi Zao. The story goes about a boy named Izumi who all his life wanted to become a manga artist. The only problem being is that his family does not approve of his choice for his future because he pretty much sucks at drawing anything remotely good. But, he’s deluded himself into thinking that his work is awesome looking. Also, to make things worse he has an obsession with Lala-Lulu who is a female heroine in one of his favorite anime shows.

Izumi belongs to a famous show biz family. His mom is a well-known actress, his father owns a talent agency company and his older brother, Shogo, is the lead singer for a popular band. So, you would think that he would just follow in his families footsteps and go the same route, right? Nope. One of his main reasons for not joining his family in the spotlight is because he thinks he has no talent of any kind that he can show off and that he’s terrible around crowds. Still, that doesn’t stop his family members especially, Rei, the family manager from trying to get into the family business.

One day, a golden opportunity comes knocking for Izumi when a famous celebrity named Ryoma comes to his family with an offer that they can’t refuse. The only problem for Izumi is that Ryoma thinks that he’s a girl from a long time ago and has fallen in love with him. (Poor Izumi)

This story is totally hilarious and heart warming at the same time. I’ve both read and watched it and it is totally awesome no matter how I read the story. Now, if your against gay love or seeing some man on man action, then this probably isn’t for you. For those that are cool with it, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. My eyes were pretty much glued to the screen and before I knew it, I had gone through all of the episodes. Don’ think its going to get a season 2 but if it did I hope it’s just as hilarious as the first one. Also, to let all you guys know the show is pretty much the same as the manga, so it won’t really matter which way you guys prefer to see this wonderful story unfold.

Thinking pretty hard about it, but I’m going to have to give it a 4/5. The characters were hilarious and so were the situations to they were put through. During all of this, you watch as a young boy face his fears and learns how much everyone around him cares about him and his future. Enjoy!

Life is Strange

Source: gamingbolt.com

When I first saw this game I was a little hesitant to play it to tell you the truth, but then I said to myself ‘what the heck I’ll give it try’. Looking back, I am so glad that I bought this game and brought it back home with me, so now I was mentally kicking myself because I almost didn’t buy it that day. This game was created by Dontnod Entertainment and Square Enix and it revolves around a girl named Max who goes through the strangest things during this entire game.

The game already starts out very weird and mysterious because she wakes up in the middle of a storm just in time to see her hometown about to get destroyed by a massive monster tornado. But, right after her supposed ‘vision’ of the future, she suddenly gains the power of controlling time. How does she get that power?

I really don’t know. I was wondering during this whole game how out of every character that was in here, why was she the only one that gained that power? It looks to me that it will always be a mystery and all we can do is speculate and guess why and how. I just wish they would have given us a hint of some sort during the game, so we wouldn’t be so confused now. Out of everything that was put into the game, that one story detail was the only bad thing that I could point out.

The graphics were excellent and the gameplay. This is another what I like to call movie video game but with a lot more input from the player this time than the previous ones I’ve played if you ask me. This game had a bit of the usual but added a hint of a puzzle/hidden object parts to it, too. So, we had a lot more to play with in this one.

If I had to give this game a rating then I would give it a 4.5/5. Like I’ve said before it was really good and there are many ways to play this game with multiple outcomes that just want you to go back and play it again. I’m not going to go into detail about the story for you guys, since I don’t want to spoil it for you but just know there is a lot of drama in this and it will definitely make you cry. I would recommend this game to pretty much everyone that loves a good storyline and is looking for a nice way to pass the time.

Danganronpa Series

Have you ever looked at a game sitting on the shelf and knew it was for you? You didn’t even look into it you just saw it and said I’m getting because you already knew it was the game for you? Well, when I first saw the Danganronpa game, my ‘gamer senses’ were tingling and I bought it on the spot. So far, I do not regret that decision.

This awesome game was made by Spike Chunsoft and I’ve got to say this game’s story really caught my attention and sucked me right in before I knew it, I was done with the first game and ready to buy the second one. By the way, I’m only going to talk about the first two games in the series, since theirs so much to talk about with this series. The plot of this story first starts at Hopes Peak Academy where if your scouted and recruited to join this school your future is guaranteed to be successful. The reason for that is because they hone whatever talent that you have into something that can become a profitable job.

Sounds pretty cool, huh? I would like to go to a school like that if it existed. But, just like any elite school the only way to get in is if your scouted by a scout from the school. The only other way is by a random lottery the school does and enters you in as the “Ultimate Lucky” student which, of course, the main character, Makato, ends up winning and going to the school. Sadly, things go down hill from there.

The moment he enters the school, he suddenly grows unconscious and wakes up trapped in the middle of the school where he discovers 14 other students. That’s when my favorite character, Monokuma, appears and explains that they will live in the school forever and the only way to get out is to murder someone and not get caught.

Both of these games are filled with dark and twisted situations that will make your head spin. I love the characters in both games because their so unique and crazy and the endings to both games just make you go, “Wait a minute…….WHAT?!” I swear even if you’re not into playing games where the characters talk a lot, but your into solving mysteries and watching how crazy these people can get then this is for you.

The second game is a continuation of the first game, but with different characters and different situations. Also, this game was turned into an anime so if you don’t want to play it then you can always watch it and see how it plays out. Its just as enjoyable with either watching or playing or both! Its very dark, very twisted and very funny. I deeply enjoyed this series and I hope you do, too.

Psychic Detective Yakumo

Source: http://www.alquimistacu.blogspot.com

This dark and mysterious anime was created by Manabu Kaminaga. This show mostly centers itself around Yakumo and his new (even if he never says it) friend, Haruka. Haruka was a client in the beginning, but gained a crush for the good-looking teen detective and decided to help him on his investigations. We all know why she’s really there. She’s hoping to get close enough to him to see if they could be more than friends/co-workers.

 

From watching it, she might have a shot since they seem to be getting closer and closer, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. There is a reason why he’s single and has to do with his abilities and his cold shoulder towards living human beings. That’s right, folks! Yakumo’s secret ability is being able to see the dead with his cursed red-eye.

Personally, I love his red-eye I think its cool looking, but in this story his eye is scary to others. So much that people used to shun him as a child, sad I know. Later in the years, he decides to use his ability for profit and becomes a detective. People think he’s psychic though because he’s always right, but in reality he’s getting help from the dead. They usually call on him for cold or unusual cases that can’t be explained.

I really liked watching this anime especially when they decided to add the romance factor into it. Yakumo may never say it or show it, but I think he’s really grateful for the people who hang around him, even though, he’s grumpy all the time. Except for his dad, he can go away and no one would miss him. In this entire story, he tries to make Yakumo’s life a living hell and for the longest time, I couldn’t understand why. Why would you do these things to your own son? Maybe to prove a point?

If you haven’t watched it yet, just know that everything does become clear in the end. Except knowing if Yakumo and Haruka are going to end up together. That one is left to your imagination. I end up liking and not liking Haruka…..why? Because of how she acts in this show. I’m not saying she was a girly girl or anything like that, but I felt like she joined the team just because Yakumo’s hot and mysterious. But, there are times that she acts like a true friend and is there to support him in his time of need.

I don’t how you guys feel, but that’s how I feel about her. Anyway, this is also a manga which is equally as good and if you like dark stuff, mystery and seeing dead people then this is for you. I hope you all love it as much as I did.

Assassination Classroom

Source: http://www.anime-verlast.blogspot.com

Just as the title suggests this class is for assassins in training only! This anime was made by Yusei Matsui and I’ve got to say this one was really fun to watch. The teens in this story are placed in what I like to call the ” Troublemaker Class” because their school system is fucked up. The school that they go to is really strict and elite, so to everyone that attends that school; grades are everything. If you don’t have good grades then your a pile of shit in their eyes and a waste of time.

 

If that wasn’t bad enough, instead, of kicking the students out so they can find another school to go to their twisted and dark principal, Mr. Asano, decides that he wants to use the failing students as examples to the other kids as to what will happen to you if your grades start to slip. I think the principal is a really dark and sadistic person and his son is no better. During the show, I didn’t know what would be worse if the principal stayed in power the whole time or the son taking over.

Anyway, these students are miserable since their lives suck but one day out of nowhere the freaking moon explodes. Then, national security comes into their classroom dragging a very smiley, yellow alien that claims to have blown up the moon and then says that he’ll do the same thing to Earth and that the only way he’ll stop his plans is if one of the students is able to assassinate him within a year. From that day on the Assassination Classroom was born!

This show was really hilarious and exciting to watch. While I was watching it, I was wondering why I haven’t watched it sooner. My favorite characters besides, Korosensei, would have to be Karma and Nagisa. Karma came off as a psychotic badass to me and I already knew that he was going to drive Korosensei insane. Later, in the story you’ll find out that theirs more to him than that and for all we know he could be the principal’s son’s long lost twin brother.

I mean really now? Did the creators for this anime just suddenly get lazy one day and just recycle Karma’s character and think we wouldn’t notice?! The only difference between the two is their hair color and clothes, that’s it. Nothing else! I’m watching this show to see if either the other characters will notice how similar they are or if by chance they’ll explain this. So far no dice on either scenario.

I like Nagisa, as well, because he was secretly badass. He was that type of guy that I think most people can relate to. Normal guy, even though, he looks like a girl in disguise but doesn’t have a clue what he’s good at until the assassin thing comes in. Turns out, he’s a natural born assassin. He’s starting to become so good that he’s starting to scare his teachers. My favorite thing about Nagisa besides him being awesome are his inner monologues when he fights. I don’t know if I should freak out or laugh, but I certainly enjoy them.

This anime is really entertaining and I encourage anyone to go watch it. They would be missing out if they don’t and yes this is also a manga. So, if you enjoy reading more than watching or want to do both then their you go. My guess on what is going to happen in this story, eventually,  is that the year goes by and no one has killed him so everyone freaks out, but he ends up not blowing up the planet because he had such a nice time with everyone. Again that’s just a guess on what I think is going to happen. I really hope that this anime gets a season 2, it really deserves another season.

Corpse Party: Another Child

This Corpse Party I would say would be the second season of the first Corpse Party, just with different characters. In this Corpse party, the main character is a girl named Tamaki who is also a psychic.

Her school is about to be shut down and almost everybody is getting transferred to schools in the city, except for a select few like Tamaki. Tamaki doesn’t seem to have many friends, but many enemies. The leader of these bullies would have to be Erina, who picks on her because Tamaki’s boyfriend, Yuuma, doesn’t like her. That’s what I don’t get, why would you pick on the do think timid girl because she has a boyfriend that is not hot for you?

But, I did think that a little bit was Tamaki’s fault. She was so prideful that she wouldn’t tell anyone that she was being bullied. Also, if she wasn’t so shy and everything and just told Erina off then she would have backed off or it could have made it a lot worse, who knows.

I like this new Corpse Party for several reasons. First off, the mystery behind it. If you’ve already seen the first one then that part is no longer a mystery, but when you find out that theirs another creepy ghost girl haunting the place while Sachiko is just sleeping someplace else, it kind of makes you wonder. Secondly, why does this ghost have a fascination with Tamaki? Is it because she’s the one responsible for bringing them her or is it something else?

We know from the first Corpse Party that Sachiko and all the other spirits and dead bodies are trapped in that other dimension. But, for some strange reason we caught her hanging around Tamaki before the spell was cast. How and why is the question and the story just sucks you right in.

Another reason I liked this manga so much is because we see a couple of the old characters in this version which I thought was awesome. Since, this manga is still ongoing I do not know if we’ll end up seeing all of them or maybe the ones who didn’t make it out from the last story.

Anyway, this version of Corpse Party is a really interesting read with a lot more mystery behind it. I really hope that Tamaki will face her fears and get out and that someone or something kills Erina.

Gakuen Alice

This cute little manga is called Gakuen Alice and was created by Higuchi Tachibana. In this story, people who are considered geniuses all over the world get sent to this elite school for the gifted. The students who are admitted are treated like national treasures by the government. The only catch is that they are forbidden from contacting anyone from the outside, nor can they ever leave.

One day, Mikan’s friend, Hotaru gets accepted into the school and she’s never seen again. Mikan who so desperately wanted to see her friend again runs away from home to the school where her friend was at. Now everyone says that its impossible to get into the school, but luck would have it that she runs into one of the teachers and takes a shine to her.

Also, that same day she meets Natsume. A cool looking boy who wears a black cat mask and has control over fire. When these two met, she saw him blow up a wall with his fire power in order to escape. Ever since, that day these two have been at each other’s throats because he so mean to her for no reason and she doesn’t understand why.

Mikan gets accepted into the school after they tell her that she also has a power or what they call an ‘Alice’ that has the power to nullify any other person’s power. Turns out that the school wasn’t made for geniuses like everyone thinks, its actually a school for people who have powers. The main focus of this school is to find them and help them hone their powers so they can use them to help society. Turns out that Mikan’s friend has a technology power, which she can use to make anything that she wants.

Later, we discover that Natsume is considered a problem child because he tries to escape the school constantly. As punishment he has to wear the black cat mask which cancels out the wearers powers. But, he so powerful that he can still use them with it on, so what I want to know is why they even bother putting the mask on him in the first place?

Natsume is considered the bad boy in this manga and he only has one friend and that’s Luca who has the power to bond and control animals. He looks as bad as Natsume until you put him around animals and then he turns into a whole different person.

Anyway, Mikan has it tough at this school and I wonder what she’ll do next. For some reason, I think Natsume and Mikan we’ll become friends later………way later in the story by what I can tell. This is a really cute manga and I recommend it to all that like these type of stories.

Mitsu Aji Blood

This manga is by Mitsuki, Miko and is also known as Honey Blood. It revolves around a girl named Hinata who one day notices that we have a new next door neighbor named Junya. Junya is handsome, mysterious, a famous writer and…….a vampire!

I kind of get confused on what the people know in this story about beings of the supernatural because in the beginning when people were being killed in a very vampire-like fashion, they thought it was vampires. But, one of Hinata’s friends keeps saying that vampires do not exist. I’m sure her friend isn’t the only one who thinks that. So, it raises the question, do the people in this story know about vampires or not?

Also, when these murders started to take place is the same time that her new neighbor, Junya moved in. So, of course, she was instantly suspicious of him. I also think she was getting curious about him because she was attracted to him. He has a beautiful female editor who comes to see him all the time and at first it looks like they are ‘sleeping together’ all the time. Looks can be deceiving though.

Eventually, Hinata and Junya become a couple (like we didn’t see this coming) and the story continues. I could already tell that the editor didn’t approve of their relationship because she was jealous. I think Hinata should take her jealousy as a total self-esteem boost because the handsome vampire didn’t want the hot and curvy editor, he wanted Hinata. She’s not sexy, I would say that she’s cute or adorable.

Also, Hinata has acquired one of the laziest or most laid-back boyfriend in the world. Other than working on his new book, he eats (drinks her blood), sleeps, teases her or goes out for a midnight stroll. Whenever, Hinata tries to get him to do things that she wants to do, she has to literally drag him out the house in order for him to do it.

Note: I don’t sunlight can kill him, but it does make him extremely weak.

As the story, goes on you’ll find out that more and more about Junya’s past and how it’ll affect Hinata’s future. You’ll have to read this manga to find out. But, I think that their realationship is totally hilarious and adorable.

Blue Exorcist

Ao no Exorcist a.k.a Blue Exorcist is about named Rin Okumura, who is a total hot-headed and ends up getting into fights a lot. Not only that, but he has a twin brother named Yukio and these two brothers don’t act alike, sound alike or even look-alike. What’s even more hilarious about this is that Rin is the older brother out of the pair, but no one believes them. Yukio is the more mature and responsible twin with a job and goes a really famous school called True Cross Academy. On the other hand, Rin is the reckless twin who has no job goes to public high school.

Now, your probably thinking that Rin is just a no good person with no heart but that isn’t the case. It turns out that when he gets into a fights, there is a good reason behind it. For example, he caught some guys shooting pigeons down with to a crossbow and wanted them to stop. So, I would say that Rin is a more misunderstood type of guy.

Anyway, one day Rin gets attacked by a demon which chases him all the back to the church and that’s when his father ,Shiro, who is the head priest of the church tells him that he is the son of Satan and that he’s a half-demon. Shiro then gives him a sword that especially made for him, but he says he should never unsheathe it because then his demonic nature would come out. Of course, we all know that he’s going to do it anyway and help fight the demon off. After, that Satan possesses Shiro which ends up killing him.

After that Director Mesphisto Pheles comes in who is an old friend of Shiro. He tells Rin that he should come to True Cross Academy, so he can live and learn how to become an exorcist, so he can defeat Satan and avenge his father’s death.

This is a really good anime and its also a manga, too. It’s really funny and there are a lot of twists and turns everywhere in this. This anime really keeps you on your toes and I would recommend this to anyone who loves anime. Sorry, I couldn’t get too far into talking about the characters in this one. But, I’ll talk about them a little more next time.
